7/23/2011 went from thunderbird 3.1.11-1.fc15.x86_64 to 5.0-1.  8/23 went from 5.0-1 to 6.0-1.  I'm not sure when the bug was introduced.  I noticed it after I upgraded to thunderbird 6.

That was when I also noticed that one has to confirm every time one deletes an entry from Collected Addresses.  In my opinion, that wasn't a good change.  At the very least, we should have a settable option to not confirm.
